i'll keep it simple for obvious reasons

March 22, 2009

I wish that California's weather was actually stable and stopped switching off, as in, Monday was a perfect 77 degrees and yesterday was a bitter 60. Honestly, switching from warm to cold weather throws me off, particually because I'm glad I can throw on a skirt and not have to look back at my fall wardrobe. Alas, I'm stuck throwing on a leather jacket and boots that I'm more than tired of wearing; I desperately need to find a better alternative.

But what I do like about my outfit is this gorgeous chiffon, jewel encrusted tunic underneath. The intricate details are lost in this picture, but for that reason, I'm a little afraid of wearing it. I bought this years ago, probably two or three years ago, and I think I'm ready to embrace it again. I can't wait to wear it with white leggings and white 5' sandals once the weather heats up again.

Shirt: Auqa | Jacket, leggings: Urban Outfitters | Shoes: Harley Davidson

ETA: This is a very interesting documentary of Carine Roitfeld. You can watch the rest of the documentary (part 2 and 3) on YouTube.

    seriously... california weather in this tentative in-between fall/spring time is so annoying for picking out an outfit in the morning.

  4. yup, i hate the weather in northern ireland too... it could be sunny and warm one day, and chilly and windy the next... but i'm looking forward to some minimal wear as i hate wearing coats and sweater everytime..

  5. Awww girl you so pretty. Can't wait to see the bejeweled tunic top worn the way described...sounds heavenly!

  6. Amazing shirt!! and great outfit =)

  7. california and florida weather are alike. sometimes, it rains the whole morning and at lunch time, it stops. the florida toasty weather kicks in!the craziest part? it is raining on the other side of the street and across it is fine! duh!

  8. i know what you mean, it can get pretty tiring having to get dressed in the same clothes over and over again, while you wait for the next season to come. the same thing is happening to me, i love being able to throw on two or three items of clothing and be ready to walk out the door. but i'm really anxious to start wearing my new coats, jackets and boots.
    the good thing is that you don't look boring at all, and that's not an easy thing to achieve when the season is coming to an end!

    (sorry about the super long comment!)

  16. tell me about it, it snowed off and on again yesterday when the day before was 70. I love California.

  17. I love that feminine blouse with the leather jacket--a perfect combo!

  18. I loathe the weather changes too. Not that I have anything against cold weather, but I wish that we could just stick to one temperature for a while, instead of going back & forth & back again. It's annoying. & yes, it makes dressing a lot more difficult.

    Also, your shoes from Harley Davidson?! Amazing. :]

  22. I love this! ...the mix of hard and soft, it is just perfect:)

  23. what did everyone think of the carine? i was surprised that she didn't seem that intelligent to me ... maybe it is the language barrier? or maybe "intelligence" and fashion intelligence are two different things?

    love the site btw

  24. I love the softness the chiffon tunic brings to your rocker chic look :)

    I wish it was 60 degrees over here, 60 is perfect wonderful to me haha it's still around 38-40 degrees where i live LOL

    I saw the Carine interview... it's very interesting to hear her speak, but made me sad. She speaks so delicately and when I try to speak French I sound like an angry bear! what was up w/ all the corny music though?

  39. All I ask is for the ombre dress + arm bandages -together of course. I promise to wear them every single day until my wedding night... and maybe a few times after. It will be a start of a beautiful relationship. You're more than welcome to french braid my hair. I live in Orange County. Ask around for me. You will eventually find me. I'll be waiting for your package. china manufacturing
